Chan would join previously announced cast members Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani. Earlier this year, Chan portrayed Minn-Erva in “Captain Marvel,” but its unknown if she will be playing the same role in “The Eternals.” Some sources have indicated that her part in “The Eternals” would be a completely different role, which if true, would mark one of the first times a star will have played two different characters in the same cinematic universe.

Marvel declined to comment.

Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the comic book is set millions of years in the past, when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals known as the Eternals, along with the villainous Deviants. The two groups battled each other throughout history.

Marvel Studios has finally broken its losing streak at the Oscars. Black Panther was nominated for seven awards at the 91st annual Academy Awards and, in a surprising start to this year's ceremony, Marvel's record-breaking blockbuster took home two awards in the Best Costume Design and Best Production Design categories to start off the ceremony. It would also go onto win Best Original Music Score for Ludwig Goransson, winning three of the six Oscars it was vying for throughout the night. This further cements director Ryan Coogler's comic book adaptation as one for the ages.

Black Panther was also up for Best Picture Oscar in addition to Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing. But it did not secure wins in those categories, losing out for Best Picture to The Green Book, which was perhaps the most controversial win of the night, as many felt that film was

The Guardian view on colour-conscious casting: mixing it up can be a good thing | Editorial

It is welcome that television and film are catching up with theatre by taking a less literal approach to drama

“Images are political,” said the actor David Oyelowo, explaining why he avoids roles that perpetuate racial stereotypes. Mr Oyelowo is one of the stars of the BBC’s adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel Les Misérables, which concludes this Sunday. His character, Javert, is a police chief and austere legalist. In real life, in early 19th-century France, such a person would not have been black. Mr Oyelowo’s casting is down to the BBC’s decision to cast its latest period drama in a non-literal way. Such casting is often called “colour-blind”, but the truth is more complicated. Rather than choosing to ignore skin colour, or other physical markers of ethnicity, the producers of such dramas – like those who cast women in roles traditionally reserved for men – are more often

Final Academy Award Predictions Before The Nominees Are Announced

It all has come down to this. On Tuesday morning, the Academy will announce their Oscar nominations. As such, it’s time for final predictions. The Academy Awards this year will be a unique one, that’s for sure, so expect the nominees to largely follow along that path. What follows today is months of work. Slowly but surely, I’ve listen to members of the Academy, studied the precursors, and played some hunches. All that has led to my final predictions update before it goes down bright and early on Tuesday morning. There’s no way to get them all right, but I think these are pretty solid predictions, if I do say so myself. As you’ll see below, I have A Star Is Born still leading the way, both in terms of nomination totals and also in terms of still being the one to beat in Best Picture.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Why the 'Green Book' Controversies Don't Matter
Historical movies are never about history. Nor are they meant to be.

Current historical films like First Man, The Favourite, On the Basis of Sex, Vice, Bohemian Rhapsody, BlacKkKlansman and Mary Queen of Scots purport to tell us about important historic people and events, to present the facts that explain why the subject is so significant. Yet a Google search of each of these titles will produce a long list of factual inaccuracies. And that’s Ok — because these films are not about facts, they are about something much more elusive and important: truth. Specifically, they are about how the events of the past illuminate ...
